11 ahrisiicho, August 7. Well, the Rebel raid
into Ptnasylvanla, or invasion, whatever yon
may choose to term it, appears to bo at an end
for the present. Official information was received
this morning that the Rebels evacuated Makers
town last evening, and that their forceacncainped
between Sharpsburg and Sheppardstown during
the night. It is also rumored that they carried
cir a number of tho most pronilucut citizens ot
Ilngerstown as hostages. Of the truth of this
report you havo been advised from more reliable
sources.
I expected to find mncb excitement at H arris -
burg when I arrived here. The reverse was tho
fact. The citizens were as calm and placid as it
summer's evo" not an entirely new quotation,
but one that will best convey to the misses the
real condition of thedenizens of this town, under
tie exciting rumors of "another raid la Penn
sylvania." I intend to write facts, and to mako no com
ments upon matters that have been presented
to my reflection. "Charles Coldstream," when
looking into the crater at Mount Vesuvius, was
not more serene In temperament than are tho
people of llarrlsburg In regard to all prospec
tive raids against their town. They say with
'Kir Charles," "there is nothing in It," or if thoro
Is "Heaven only can help us, for Governor
Curtln cannot."
Now a word abaut Govimor Curtin. As the
people tell me I write. They say that he has
been too generous in his reply to tho powers that
be at Washington, by obeying all their commands
and furnishing all tbo men needed by the. m;
that thus the resources of Pennsylvania for State
defense, have been weakened, and when Penn
sylvania is threatened, and the Government in
appealed to for defense, it says, "Oh, take care
ol yourselves; you have men and money enough.
Organize a militia force, and you will never fear
un invasion."
l'hey langh at ns," say the people, referring to
the action of the War Depattment, "and thus tho
Rtbcl torch is applied to the firesides of our
brethren, and hundreds of onr citizens are made
penniless. Give as such a man as Seymour
(only the words of the people, mind yon), say
they, and Pennsylvania would not to-day be at
the mercy of such scoundrels. What if he does
on every occasion thwart the aims of the Gene
ral Government by refusing to supply it with
men ? By such conduct he take care of hit O'cn
State, and as self-preservation is the first law of
nature, he la eminently right In doing so."
Mind you, all this while, since the Ocncral
and State Government refuses to defend them,
according to their own argument, there is no
organization for home defense. Of tho thou
sands of healthy and stalwart men among them,
and In the country between this, point and the
Stato line, not a thousand men have stepped
forward and .signified their willingness to enlist
In the defense of their homes.
I stood before Governor Curtin yesterday and
beard men say that they were willing to go forth
as an indepenilaU force (of cavalry it was in tills
case), provided the Governor would give them a
statement, In case of their capture, tuat they went
cut In defense of their homes alone, that they
thus might escape the fate of gucrillaa and bush
wacliers (hanging), should such capture take
place.
My blood tingled in my veins as I listened to
the apical of these cowards men (in human
form nt least) who have not the manliness or
moral courage to come forward and reply to the
Governor's last cull, rather preferring to retire to
the boasted quiet of their homes the moment the
'emergency" ceases to exist. I write against
the people of my own State, and set me down
like "Dogberry" once requestc 1, If you please.
It was a sad sight yesterday tlit was presented
at the United States Hotel, whore two hundred
persons, women and children principally, were
waiting transporta'ion over the different rullrouls
diverging liom this point to the homes of their
Mends.
They were all sullorers by tho Rebel incendia
rism at Chambersburg, and most of them ware
peuuiless. Our humane friend Hutchinson, of
the United States, furnished thxo nnable to pay
with food and shelter during tho time of their
ttay, and finally succeeded In having them con
veyed over tho railroads free of charge.
I saw the tear slowly trickle down the eye of
many a niuid, wile, and mother, at the recital of
the tiials they endured at the Rebels' bands, and
even amid their tears sawthe smile which boasted
of a terrible righting of all their woes some of
these days.
Some of those who aiitl'ercd nt Cbamliersburg,
well deserved tho fate meted to them, because of
their well-known sympathies wiib the Rebol Gov
ernment; but unfortunately In this case, as In
many others, the innocent liuve been obliged to
share tho same treatment.
The Legislature meets on Tuesday noxt. The
peoplo look too it with much interest. It is to be
trusted that ample measures will be provided for
the defense of the State In all inch emergencies
as those through which we have just passed, and
hat the default may not longer exist with the
l'.xecutive as bas been assumed. Col.

Fiki.d, August 6 Midnight. From numerous
deserters who havo entered our lines within tho
last week, it bad been discovered that the Rebels
were mining in several places on our fruut. Wo
were tin re ions fully prepared, though somewhat
surprised, when, nt about fl o'cIock yesterday
aftertioon, a mine blew up between our line and
that of the enemy, the explosion Doing immedi
ately succeeded by rupid and successivo volleys
of mu-kctry. The smoke from the explosion

their wild cheer of derision at the failure of their
mining operations.

blown up a sup we had run out towards their

however, sadly miscalculated their distance, and

was thrown into any portion of our linos, and the

The Rebels dovelopcd a number of new bat
teries, und fired wUh far more accuracy than
they have hitherto been accustomed to do. Ouu
peculiar feature in connection with this fire was
lis extraordinary rapidity. At General flutter's
headquarters it is said to have sounded like
almost one continuous roar.
The splendid firing of Dow's 1st Connecticut

This opinion is confirmed by the fact that the

if this be the true state of the rase, they certainly
wasted a considerable amount of ammunition.

OBJECT OF T1TE BEDELS
EXPLODING? A MINE.
IN
Washinoton, Angus 8. A letter from the
Army of the Potomac, dated Saturday evening,
says : It Is not generally believed that the pur
pose of the enemy on Friday was to blow up a
fort in front ol the .Oth Corps, but that tholr de
sign was to damage a mine, which they suspected
was being dug in front of the 18th Corps.
Certain it Is that there waa an explosion, what
ever may have been the object of it. Our men
were considerably startled, und every one rushed
to his post, when a rapid fire commenced from
onr line In the direction the enemy wero sup
posed to be advancing.
As soon as the smoke cleared away, the true
s'ato of affairs was discovered, aud the firing at
once ceased.
A stray ball struck Colonel Steadman, com
manding the 2d Brigade or the 2d Division, 18th
Corps, which soon after resulted in his death. He
was a gallnnt officer, and his service were highly
appreciated.
A party of fifty deserters started to come into
onr lines yesterday morning at an early hour,
whtn our gunboats, not knowing their intention,
opened fire on them, killing an J wounding about
twenty of them. Nine of them arrived at head-
quarters on Saturday morning somo of them
wounded.
They represent the "Confederacy" aa being in
a bad way on account of the state of affairs at
Atlanta, and tell how their army wo fright
ened on the previous Saturday, when the
mine was sprung all leaving their guns,
aud running back some distance, fear
ing other explosions were going to occur along
the lines; but they soon regained confidence and
fell back into their former position in time to
meet the attack, which they say was more than
an honr and a half after the explosion.
These desciters say the reason why tho sol
diers do not exchange newspapers is that they
are ordered not to do so ; but this would bo of no
effect If they could afford to buy them the price
being forty cents a piece. They have not been
paid off for a long time.
Very little tiring took place on Saturday.

For some unexplained reason the commander
of tl.e infantry withdrew bis troops, and returned
in the direction of the State line, leaving Cole'

our cavalry getliug surrounded, were com

The Rebels then took possession of th town,
and proceeded to institute a thorough search of

The election for Governor of this State takes
place to-day. Governor Vance, who is a candi

of the authorities at Richmond and also the aid
of the Rebel army.
Th Rebel authorities are endeavoring to pre

otherwise, although Holden' majorities in tome

resorted to by the Rebel authorities to defeat

iueluding teverul brigadiers, who had been placed
under ore by uenerai rosier as a reimatory

Auollier Account.
Off Charleston, August 3. Tho utoamer
CoimopoUtan, having on board the fifty Heliel
prisoners (oilieers) for exchange, left Hilton
Head at 0 P. M. yesterday, and anchored off
Morris Island at t A. M. this morning.
At 9 A.M. the steamer was ugtin got under
way, and moved up to a point opposite Fort
Moulirie. where the Retssl steamer ( ?) Cheater-
jitld, having on board the Union prisoners, was
in wmtinff.
On our aide the proceedings of exchange were
cnndiicied by Major John F. Anderson, of
Mujor-Generul Foster's stiff, assisted by Major
K. N. Strong, also of General Foster' staff, and
on the Rebel aide by Major Jonu iy,oi uenerai
Jones' stuff.
by 12 M. the exebnnge was effectei, much to
the unbounded gratification of all concerned.
As the CoimojMilitan moved off hoarty cheer
were given on both sides. The band ou board
the Coemopolitan struck np " Home, Sweet
Home," which was followed by national and
putiiotlc aits.
While passing among the fleet, the gun'ioat
l'aunee fired a salute of thirteen guus, and the
crews of all the gunboats and monitor gave
vociferous cbet rs.
On board the VoimctjmUtan, a most hospitable
welcome was extended the Union officers tho
airangeineuts for the same having been made by
Ms iors Anderson and Strong.
During the interview with Major Lay, Major
Anderson made arrangements for the exchange
of Captain I-aurence Motlev, of the 1st Massa
chusetts Cavalry ; Colonel lloyt, of tbefi2d Penn

returned officers stepped aboard the Philadelphia,
aud received the congratulation of Genera!

LATE FROM THE SOUTH.
AnTAIltS A.T ATLANTA
WHAT IS DONE WITH OUR
COLORED 80LDIERS.
HICHMOND MAUICBTH.
We have received the Richmond En juirer of
August 5, from which wo take following :
I.ateot from Jora;l.
Atlavt. Aiiffnst 4. Atlaira are very qniet
thia morning. Then: was aomo picket tiring
(luring the night, but nothing ot imponstnce
occurred. Fifty priMinera wero raptured nnar
Newnan. and were sent South from Kat Point
jc'terday. About one thousand In all were
captured.
The Nesrro Troniw.
A nior irst the eleven hundred prisoners taken
by our lories last Saturday, at Petersburg, two
hundred were negroes; many of them, poi-uane
nil of them, stolen or runaway slaves. If any
advertisement has yet been published iu tho
papers calling npon persons who navo i"-i slaves
to come lorwara anil nicniuj muir i.nqtorfcv, aim
lake it away, we have not observed such adver
tisement. Latelv there were many negroe recovered
fiom the raiding party of Kuntz and Wilson:
their names were very properly published, and
their owners informed wb. re they could come and
take then'. 1 be two hundred black ra'als taken
alive In the Feb-rgburslrcnche (most improperly
taki n alive, aa they proclaimed " no quarter"),
now that they are in onr bands, are worth half
a million. It mny be hoped that strict examina
tion will be made nmongtt them, and due notice
given to such as have lately been robbed of snch
property, with a view of making restitution of
sued ot them as aie slave.
The right of the Yankee Government is un
doubted, to enlist, or to draft, or procure bow
ihiy can, free negroes whose residence, is at the
North : they would have a perfect right to make
war upon us witli elephant, or to stampede us
with wild cattle, or to sot dot; upon ns and our
men an equal right to kill them a ocrfoct right
therefore, to ernplov negioes as soldiers.
Hut they have no right to steal a man's negro,
and arm bim against bis master; and his master,
wherever be may find that stolen or runaway
negro, is entitled to reclaim him. On this point
our Government Is happily committed ; and it
ran by no means evade the plain duty of restor
ing recaptured slaves to their owners : unless
indeed it rorogulzcs tho validity of tho emancipa
tion proclamation, as well as of the confiscation
act ; but thia ia not to be supposed. '
It was not, however, making a good beginning
to march up those two hundred negroes, alomt
with nine honored white men, as prisoner of
war through the streets of Petersburg; Instead of
separating them and driving them into a pea by
themselves, until their ttntut should be ascer
tained, and their owners (if any) found. '
"Two hundred genuine i-ooshins sprrnaica
aninncst the crowd of prisoners," and placed on
the same footing, was a sight, the moral effect of
which apon the slaves of Petersburg could not be
wholesome; and it is mainly upon that ground
we disapprove of the exhibition not because
they were not good enough company for tha
Yenktcs who marched with them. '
Without, however, going further Into that
matter, for the present, It is enough to rem irk
that w e have not as yet heard of any of those two
hundred negroes being restored to their owners,
nor nut witb any advertisement that they await
Identification.
Any ono who bas lost slaves, however, noed
not await the invitation, but ought lo go at one,!,
demand to pass the whole squad in revlow, and
If be recognizes a stolen or runaway slave of his
own or any neighbor, to reclaim him aud take
possession o him. Any such planter, going to
n claim bis slave, if be meets with anv diillc ilty
bail better not be discouraged, but demand to
seo one superior officer after another until he
comes to General Lee.
If, after all, he cannot get back bis sluve, or if
be is not allowed to examine the "prisoners" to
see whether his slave is amongst them than lot
'm communicate all the facta to lb public,
through the newsiiupers.

Anothf.b Fkuvhntive of Railroad Acci
DF.NTH. A simple and ingenious contrivancj to
prevent accidents on city passenger railways will
be tried to-morrow afternoon npnn the Green and
Coates Street Railway. It is the invention of Mr.
Isaac W. Vanhouten, the Superintendent of the
Feonsvlvania Railroad car shop, ut West Phila-
dclnh a. and Mr. Byng. It consists of a frame of
plunk or sheet-iron pin. cd in from of a car, uud
curving round tho side of the wheel. It rests
betwt en the tlunges of the pedestals, and Is secured
to pins in the centre of the pedestal. The frame
is notched in the middle und works up and down
through the pin-fastenings, so that if tho ear runs
off the track, or olistaelva cover the rails, the
frame will have a play of three or four inches.
With thia ureventive attached to a car, a person
falling on the track would oe turowu out in-o me
street and could not get a band or foot under the
wheels.
